ChemiSTEAM 2021: A Journey to Pure Hexagonal Crystals

CHEMISTEAM

“A Journey to Pure Hexagonal Crystals” received an honourable mention at ChemiSTEAM 2021. Every time that I show this type of picture to lab mates and friends they are intrigued by the shape of the crystals. It leads to a conversation about crystals that can be visualized at the macro or microscopic level. It’s fascinating...

Chemists play key role in Canada’s advanced manufacturing industry

CHEMISTRY FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
BY:

From commercial applications of graphene nanofilms to turning food waste into sustainable bioplastics, the expansion of Canada’s advanced manufacturing industry also means expanded opportunities for chemists. Next Generation Manufacturing Canada (NGen), the industry-led organization behind Canada’s advanced manufacturing supercluster, is funding two such examples. In August, Waterloo, Ontario-based Evercloak – which makes thin, uniform nano-coatings...

Simplifying the sweet science of chocolate making

CHEMISTRY FOR SOCIETY

Little-known fact: the things we like about chocolate – its creamy smooth texture and how it melts in our mouths – are thanks to the crystal structure of cocoa butter. Now University of Guelph researchers have found a way to create that perfect crystal structure while simplifying the fussy tempering process.
